Bouvet Ladubay Saphir

Bouvet Ladubay Saphir 2021 is the bubbly I’m popping this July 4th! With sparkling notes of white flowers, peach, acacia, honey, and hazelnut, this French bubbly (named for the illustrious blue gemstone) will bring the pizzazz to any beach-side festivities you have planned. We recommend serving with grilled chicken or shrimp for a pairing that will have you seeing fireworks!

Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru

This 4th of July, I’ll be sipping on Zind-Humbrecht’s Grand Cru Sommerberg Riesling. I love treating my guests to a luxury wine for a holiday. Its vibrant, biodynamic nature, crisp acidity, and complex minerality will perfectly complement my summer BBQ and the festive fireworks. Cheers to freedom, flavor, and fun!

Medici Ermete Phermento

There is no better wine to celebrate the 4th of July than the Medici Ermete Phermento! This sparkling Rose is an explosion of flavor in your mouth with vibrant flavors of raspberry and red fruit. This is the perfect festive and summery drink and is easy to sip all day long!

Michele Chiarlo Nebbiolo
"Il Principe"

Michele Chiarlo Nebbiolo “Il Principe” 2021 is a delightful wine for tasty BBQ. This brilliant red wine has notes of violet, red fruits, plums, and fine spices. It is intense yet harmonious with good structure and complexity making it the perfect pairing for savory grilled meats and flavorful vegetables. Don’t forget to op it in the cooler to help bring it down to the proper temperature.
